After the Air Max 95 revolutionized sneaker design, the unspoken question that hung in the air was, how exactly do you follow up such a game changing, impactful design? While the first follow up, the Air Max 96, worked in the same neighborhood as the 95, the next year’s model, the Air Max 97 turned heads immediately with its original, sleek, ultra modern, metallic silver look. Throughout the years, Nike has released various iterations of the classic 97 design, paying homage to one of the most desired sneakers on the planet.
Dressed in a Pure Platinum, Midnight Navy, Laser Orange, Racer Pink, and Summit White colorway, the newest Air Max 97 iteration comes exclusively in women’s sizes. Featuring a White mesh upper with matching leather racing stripes, navy overlays on the tongue and mudguards along with with Orange accents on the Swoosh and Air Max sole unit provide vibrant contrast. The shoe is then finished off with Pink accents on the tongue Swoosh as well as the rubber outsole.
